Anne Marie Dustin-Ginnetty, 68, of Auburn NH, passed away peacefully at her home after a courageous battle with cancer with her loving family at her side. She was born on December 7, 1953 to Annette (Plante) Dustin, and would go on to marry her best friend Neil Ginnetty, with whom she shared over 23 years of marriage.
Anne was born in Malone, NY and would later move to Auburn, NH where she lived for many years. It was in Auburn where Anne raised her children, who were the lights of her life until the very end, as her family and her home were what she held closest to her heart.
Those who knew Anne will remember a kind and loving wife, mother and grandmother who preferred the quiet comforts of home and an occasional quick-witted, sarcastic joke. She and Neil enjoyed each other’s goofy sense of humor for their entire relationship. She was amazingly crafty, especially when crocheting and quilting, as she leaves behind countless hats, quilts and blankets. She also loved working in her garden and wrapping up the day with a good murder mystery show or a Hallmark Christmas Special, regardless of the time of year. Above all else, Anne loved her family immensely, and will be dearly missed by all whose lives she touched.
Anne is survived by her husband Neil Ginnetty; 6 daughters, Rebecca, Krista, Lisa, Elizabeth, Amber and Ashley; 10 grandchildren, Isabelle, Parker, Toby, Victoria, Taya, Elliot, Jasmine, Marshall, Hattie and Noah, as well as many extended family members and friends.
A private service for Anne will be held in the coming days for her immediate family.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Merrimack Home Health & Hospice Care Center, who took amazing care of Anne throughout her illness.
